BOTOX Cosmetic is the first and only non-surgical aesthetic injectables prescription product approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration to temporarily improve the appearance of frown lines and crow’s feet in adults. BOTOX is safe, reliable, and millions of women and men use it to restore their youthful faces and smooth wrinkles away. During the procedure, a fine needle injects BOTOX into the facial muscles that cause wrinkles and fine lines; the aesthetic injectable treatment relaxes the muscle, smoothing away the wrinkles that have developed over the years.

JUVEDERM, VOLLURE, VOLUMA, and VOLBELLA All Aesthetic Injectables

When wrinkles are not a result of underlying muscle activity, they are a result of the loss of skin and tissue structure. In this case, filling of the tissues can re-inflate and revitalize the skin, removing wrinkles or reestablishing youthful contour. At Zenn Plastic Surgery, the aesthetic nurse specialist, Mary Shaver utilizes the latest Hyaluronic Acid (HA) fillers to remove wrinkles and produce a more youthful face.

How Do Aesthetic Injectables Like HA Fillers Work?

 The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) approves HA fillers non-surgical treatments because for they are safe and effective. They are all clear gels and are made up of hyaluronic acid. HA is a natural complex sugar that bolsters skin elasticity, providing a smooth and supple appearance.

When you hear “acid,” it may sound frightening; however, on the contrary, hyaluronic acid is part of your skin. Large amounts are found within the cells of the human body, and it is this acid that gives skin its youthful appearance, glow and moisture.  We lose hyaluronic acid over the years as we age and facial muscles come closer to the skin’s surface, resulting in smile lines and increased wrinkles.

This is why the most effective skin fillers include hyaluronic acid

In an attempt to replace and restore the natural hyaluronic acid of your skin. The four fillers listed differ in their composition which gives them unique characteristics. This of course makes each valuable for different uses in the face.

Both JUVEDERM and VOLLURE formulations make them soft enough to place directly under the skin near the wrinkle. Doing so effectively eliminates the wrinkle while avoiding visible or palpable lumps. They can reinflate soft tissues as well but do not have the structure to support larger volume changes. JUVEDERM has been around longer with a proven track record. The durability of results varies depending on the area of the face and how fast each patient breaks the HAs down. VOLLURE is a newer formulation that is smoother and lasts longer than JUVEDERM. JUVEDERM, on average, lasts 4 to 6 months while VOLLURE can last up to 18 months.

The lips are a particularly difficult location to maintain HA fillers…

This is due to the constant movement and excellent blood supply. VOLBELLA was specially formulated just for the lips and is now the standard lip filler. Most HA fillers only last a month or two in the lips. However, VOLBELLA can last six months to a year.

When volume replacement is desired to counteract bone loss or fat loss in the face, a more structured type of aesthetic injectables HA filler is needed. VOLUMA is the answer. Due to its density, VOLUMA is placed deeply, near the facial bones. This helps  to naturally support and emphasize the existing facial tissues. If placed too close to the skin it would be palpable. VOLUMA has largely replaced the use of facial implants, which had the same beneficial effects of tissue support but required surgery for their placement. While true that facial implants can last a lifetime, VOLUMA lasts one to two years and improves cheek fullness, nasolabial folds, and jawline irregularities in a simple office visit.
